As a makeup artist and a person who takes pride in looking good, I am not here to just do makeup, but to be a resource and advocate for beauty.
Let me begin by thanking Kimberly Porter for inviting me and congratulations to Geneveive Santos of Gorgeous on the Go and Karen Oliver & Associates for hosting such a beautiful and informative event.
Dr. Graf is one of the most sought out experts on skin care in the United States. I am very familiar with her because I see her quoted in many top beauty magazines. This event was to discuss her new book Stop Aging, Start Living and to introduce the Revolutionary 2-week pH Diet. I am a proponent of having a dermatology visit at least once a year and a firm believer that your food intake and lifestyle is key to your health and skin appearance. Dr. Graf not only reinforced my beliefs but gave me key information to solidify and measure my daily activities to ensure a healthy lifestyle and beautiful skin.
I am in the process of reading the book, but the nitty gritty is that your pH level needs to be balanced to have youthful looking skin. No chemical, medicine, medical and/or cosmetic procedure can do the trick alone. Dr. Graf has discovered that through all her work as a dermatologist without proper digestion, joy, and proper pH balance your skin will be missing the beautiful glow we all want and seek to achieve. Your food intake and lifestyle must be in sync to achieve gorgeous skin. The appropriate pH level is 7.
This is important to me because not only do I want to look good, I also want to be a resource to anyone who may have troubled skin. While I am not a dermatologist, I have used many skincare products and as a makeup artist I care about skin and its appearance. Check back to see my progress in taking on Dr. Graf’s tips.
